Got the body off the frame of my '77 13' Scamp
and have it in the axle
shop. Couple of questions:
1. I have seen a thread (or two) in here about tire/ wheel, hub, axle
combinations and calculations with trick diagrams and pictures. Can anyone point me to them? I cannot seem to locate them.
2. I am going to a Flexride trailing configuration with the new axle
going under the floor pan instead of behind. The frame is in decent shape and was just sandblasted, but now the already thin tube steel seems even flimsier. Has anyone done any kind of stiffening, shoring, or otherwise to their frame? I seem to recall seeing some posts related to this sort of thing as well. Since the frame is off this an excellent opportunity to do something about this.
Will try to get a resto thread going in the next couple weeks with pics and plans, but for now it's all over the place. Thanks for any help.
